Notes

If you go to the Archive you will find soundboard sources, and in the comments you will see people saying there was a better source without the "dropouts" and there is a tape with some audience sound that sounds better, with Jerry up in the mix. This is from my FM source and has those features, a better mix (Jerry more up front), no dropouts of Etta's voice. I feel it is superior to the soundboards in circulation.

C C Rider and BWYWMTD with Matthew Kelly

-- Goin' Down The Road tease after Not Fade Away
-- Set 3 with Etta James and Tower of Power

Reviewer: Mark Scalise - - December 31, 2011
Subject: Yep, this is how I remember it
The Miller SBD certainly wins for crispiness, but I also prefer this mix by a longshot.
Reviewer: high flow - - August 13, 2011
Subject: Yes, this is the way the tape sounded.
It's grittier and funkier than the SBD capture. The SBD remasters here at LMA are brilliant and, perhaps, this version could stand some "work". Overall, however, I find this recording to be more pleasing to the ear.
Reviewer: Wally Gator - - August 13, 2011
Subject: I agree
Je suis d'accord.

Subject: Finally, the version I've been looking for
Third set is great, to my ears. Since near the start of the archive I have been hoping this version of the show would get uploaded. Thank you. My reason being that this is the best mix, though not perfect, so you can hear everyone during the third set. The Dead sparkle and Jerry is on fire, all the other versions had the horns way too strong and drowning out all the best parts of the set! Please compare and I think most will agree! Peace
